From Flipping to Foreclosure

Flip This House
From the NY Times: A Shift in Real Estate Books

A few years ago, when the housing market was white-hot, companies that publish how-to books were tripping over themselves to pump out titles about buying property and making money in the real estate business.

Now that the bottom has fallen out of the housing market, the opposite is true: publishers are updating their backlist titles as well as rushing out newly acquired manuscripts to advise consumers who may have stumbled in the housing game.

Buying Foreclosures
These two covers tell the story.

From "Flipping Houses" to "Foreclosure Investing" in just a couple of years.

And, yes, both books are by the same authors.
